done before. status quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of president obama of the we will not have four more years of president obama. his plan and his approach says fundamentally that government knows better than you how to live your life, how to pick winners and losers, how to choose companies that can be successful and products that have a future. that a group of bureaucrats, real smart people, working hard -- they are good people who work in washington -- he has a view they know better than free people. he will put them in the most important or one of the most important relationships you have. that is the relationship between you and your doctor. he will put government between this if he has his way. he wants a government that is more and more expansive. do you know how much money he spent in one year putting money into companies that he thought had a bright future? green companies. he spent $90 billion and sent to companies in many cases, that remain owned by campaign contributors of his. this is a vision of government that is entirely foreign to anything this na
your hands from in front of your eyes here. the latest poll in michigan has mr. obama up by four in michigan. which is a lot less than the 12-point and 14-point leads the
the 2008 democratic convention. same state that president obama went on to win four years ago. it's going to be the first time that these two are going to share the same stage, and they're going to tackle domestic policy. that's going to happen for 90 minutes. of course, the stakes very high. especially for romney now. he is trailing in key states that could decide this election. cnn's candy crowley is saying that they're great expectations, even while both sides are trying to lower them. >> reporter: apparently romney supporter and republican governor chris christie didn't get the memo. >> wednesday night is the restart of this campaign, and i think you're going to see those numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> reporter: note to governor christie. no, no, no, no. sop for predebate chatter is to lower expectations for your guy by raising expectations for the other die guy. like this. >> president obama is a very -- he is a very gifted speaker. the man has been on the national stage for many years. he is an experienced debater. >> reporter: because this is a bipartis

not to stick with those images of obama in the last four years. >> bill: you are talking primarily about non-ideological voters. >> yes, absolutely. >> bill: so they think that the president even though they may be disappointed in his performance he is basically a nice guy. do you agree with that? >> i think what has happened is the romney campaign has not given the voters a chance to look at the basic issues he needs to talk about. the more they focus on likeability the better for obama. >> bill: it's close, only three points? >> because romney is good guy, he is basically likable but it has to do with a lot of factors. what people want to focus on and really wanted to see the economy. you are talking about people in the middle. they are not ideological. >> bill: but it works against the president for the economy. you said something interesting. do you think that most uninformed voters, that is what we are talking about. people that are informed they will go on medicare and iran, but people that are floating around -- don't really know -- is it working to spend hundreds of millions of dolla
nader, a four-time presidential candidate, says president obama should be poised for a landslide victory, but swings control of congress dramatically back to democrats, but instead he's running a selfish campaign that's done little to help his party on capitol hill. in an interview,, mr. nader, also predicted a major shakeup in american politics by 2016 when a billionaire political messiah will be prepared to spend his own money to force choices in the next presidential election. host: that's in the "washington times" this morning, and this is also in the "washington times," "man behind insulting video arrested." a california man behind a crudely produced anti-islamic video that inflamed parts of the middle east was arrested thursday. host: back to your calls on media coverage of campaign 2012. david in illinois, independent line. hi, david. caller: hello. thank you for c-span. i think c-span is pretty fair in its coverage, but i think the liberal media is totally biased. we even have this on a local level. they just run the major networks with news coverage. you can see they tape obama
obama as a president for four years. there's not much room on his canvas to paint. mitt romney? he's still got a little space left on his canvas. he can show us where he would lead us. >> just how much debate prep will president obama and romney do over the next few days? >> this is really crunch time, right? the president is already headed to las vegas. he has a rally there tonight and will spend the next several days doing debate prep out there in nevada which is, of course, a key battleground state. he'll be with john kerry who is representing romney in his sessions. we're told romney heads out to colorado tomorrow. he'll be practicing with ohio senator rob portman. portman is playing president obama in these debates and it's all leading up to wednesday's big night. fred? >> thanks very much in washington. don't miss the big debate. you can watch it here live on cnn, 7:00 p.m. eastern time. >>> the chief justices will formally kick off a new term on the agenda, some of the most complicated issues of our day. here now is joe johns. >> reporter: right after the supreme court's hea
, the worst is iran with nuclear weapons. bill, where are we? four years, obama has been talking. four years the iranians have it happened to build -- >> bill: no doubt about it. they thumbed their nose at him. >> north korea route. >> colonel hunt, i certainly understand that model, but iran is different. north korea doesn't threaten the world economy, the world oil supplies. they weren't led by meeseianic nut cases. they didn't have this -- >> ralph, you're -- >> bill: the north korea had a restraining agent in that sense does to this day and that's china. there is no restraining agent on iran at all. none. >> but guy, iran has hezbollah and hamas, if they uncork them, hezbollah in lebanon and hamas in palestine and float one of their three submarines in the strait of arrest had you seen, you have real problems. my point is that if you bomb, if the israelis go to bomb, there is no success. the only way to get at those bunkers is nuclear bunker busters and nobody is going to throw nukes at iran. my point is there is so much more to do against iran than talk about -- >> bill: look, you can c
? or was early voting under way -- >> president obama. >> is it too late for a turnaround? >> four years from his last debate. >> you're wrong. >> will be president obama be rusty? we'll ask our headliners. new jersey governor chris christie and the president's senior adviser david plouffe. and our powerhouse roundtable. squaring off, haley barbour and howard dean. plus, matthew dowd, donna brazile and maggie haberman of politico. >>> hello again. we're heading into the home stretch of this campaign. just 37 days before the final votes. with all eyes on this week's first debate. the candidacy are hunkering down in debate camp. where the race stands. what to expect wednesday? white house adviser david plouffe standing by for the president. but let's begin with the romney camp, new jersey governor chris christie. good morning. >> good morning, george. >> since the convention, romney has fallen behind in the battlegrounds. new polls out this morning, ohio and iowa, behind. governor romney has to shake things up wednesday night. >> he's going to, i mean, every time mitt romney has been confronted in
, 45% of likely machine voters believe u.s. muslim relations are worse now than four years ago. just 18% say relations are better. that would seem to indicate a failure in the obama foreign policy. yet the president will point to the did he say mation of al-qaeda and the killing of bin laden to persuade voters he is not soft on the jihad. to be fair to president obama, opinions about his muslim outreach are inconclusive at this point. most americans don't want war with iran because that would send oil prices and possibly lead to world war 3. there is no way on this earth that israel is going to allow iran to develop a nuclear weapon. the israelis will attack the iranians. they will attack. it's just a matter of when. so americans must decide which presidential candidate can better manage the situation. things have not changed in iran since mr. obama took office, except the iranians are further down the road to development of the nuclear weapons. governor romney says he would get tougher with the iranians by supporting israel to a greater ex tents 6789 it's an incredibly difficult situat
who voted for president obama in 2008. who over the course of four years were having a hard time in the economy. things are going so tough. they are disillusioned now going to vote for romney. they are both going after the target. it's all fair, right? >> andrea: listen to what they are saying about republicans, greg. maybe not so fair. eva longoria refers to anyone who criticizes obama as extremist. sheryl crow said the tea party is stupid and they don't know what they're angry at. my personal favorite, gloria steinham said of republican women, i mean, they think they bet dore what the powerful men tell them to do or they'll be in even more trouble. wow! >> bob: with all you respect, you and dana may not be at the table if it weren't for gloria steinham. she aided women going to college. it's not funny. she blazed a trail and deserves not the rest of the boombah whatever they're called but this woman is a historical figure in the women's group. >> andrea: the women's movement did a lot. she sits and insults women like dana. that is not a rallying cry for women. >> bob: she shoul
. israel is threatened. what does obama have to show for four years? >> bill: isn't the only other alternative war? a military strike? doesn't seem to be anything else that he's not doing, although i do have one thing in the back of my mind, but i'm going to hold it back. go. >> nobody wants war in the persian gulf. but it looks increasingly like it is going to happen because we have been -- >> bill: would you say this is the time now to make it happen? >> no. let me make one thing very clear. there are no good alternatives in the persian gulf but the worst possible alternative is that iran would nuclear weapons not only because of the threat to israel -- >> bill: that's not worse -- you're saying that war is better than allowing iran to have a nuke? war is better? >> i think a well executed war thoroughly planned and determined would be better for the world than iran with nuclear weapons. >> bill: looking at iran and afghanistan, yie. kirsten, i'm sure you disagree. but you need to be precise in your disagreement. there is no doubt that president obama has not gotten anywhere with
. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> eric: the obama administration coverup of an american debt. not a spy thriller or conspiracy movie. it's real. four americans are debt and it's all playing out in front of our eyes. fox news has confirmed within 24 hours of the assault in benghazi, u.s. intelligence knew it was preplanned and ladies and gentlemened it a terrorist attack, an al-qaeda terrorist attack. we have been saying this all along on "the five." thereon the obama administration trying -- listen to the obama administration thighing to spin the story -- trying to spin the story. they were aware of this by september 12. pay careful attention the dates. >> there is no justification, none at all for responding to this video with violence. >> we have no information to suggest that it was a pre pre-planned attack. it's not a reaction to the 9/11 anniversary that we know of. >> this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. >> eric: all right. here is president obama tuesday. >> there are no words to excuse the killing of innocence. there is no video this justifies an attack on an embassy. >> eric:
by four points. nationally, president obama has seen his lead rebound in recent days. in the gallup daily tracking point, he initially got a six-point bounce out of the democratic convention. that lead evaporated in the days that followed, but now as you can see, president obama has regained that six-point lead as if he just did the conventions all over again. with just 41 days left until the election, a snapshot of the race is very clear. in fact, we do these polls every day and it's almost starting to seem static at the presidential level. these swing state polls that we do every day, pretty much the map always look like this. president obama leading in all of the swing states or at least leading in almost all of them. a standard caveat, of course, is that anything could change. but the longer that it goes on without changing, as long as it starts to look like this is calcifying as the state of the race, especially now that more than half the country is already voting, half the swing states, already voting right now, while that is happening, if that part of the race is staying and this
voters think mr. obama would do a better job. a cnn average of four recent ohio polls found 51% of voters support president obama. 44% favor mitt romney. one of romney's events wednesday was a manufacturing round table with business leaders and tv host micro. he's a man known for taking on tough jobs. in ohio he's overshadowed by the two other men that's even tougher. in washington i'm emily smith. >>> and for some more numbers, campaigned two on university poll says president obama was wide lead over mitt romney in the swing states of ohio, florida, and pennsylvania. in this case the president leads romney in ohio by ten points, leads in florida by nine points and in pennsylvania by 12 points. president before the united niegss today said the u.s./european union have entrusted themselves. the hall was not full as speech. the u.s. made demonstration voiced part of the speech. spokesman for the yieted nation un ambassador said it was unfortunate it was given the platform on yon kippur the holiest day in jud yichl. >>> magnitude 2.4 hit the area just after 3:30 p.m. the communities. no dama
-point margin for barack obama over the last three or four months. what that means in is the idea that obama could get 80% of the minority vote again is actually quite plausible based on these and other data. that looks like is what is going to get you. if he doesn't get 80, he will get 78 or 79. then the road at the bottom scioscia the breakout for college grad, some college or less or working class. the right and figures for likely voters, obama is doing a little bit better among white college graduate voters than he did in 2008, a to point margin, close to four points again. in the some college or less grip, he improved by 13 points which is somewhat better than he did in 2008 when he lost by 18. so remember what i was saying about the outlandishly large margins that mitt romney probably needs to be competitive among white working-class, the run up among white working-class voters. he's not anywhere close. that's the bottom line. this is true across many polls. you might see a margin of 20 points for mitt romney. you might see a margin of 22 points but nowhere do you see the ou
-breaking news. president obama blocked a chinese company from owning four wind farm projects in northern oregon. the reason -- apparently national security concerns. plus, our president has been touting his so-called new plan. he named it "patriotic economics." want a clue what it may be like? parlez vous fracais? . gop supporters can try to int blame clint eastwood's empty chair, media biased league polls, and video and in the end it could be mitt. that according to an southwesting piece in "politico" today. here's the co-author of the aforementioned piece, senior political reporter johnathon martin and robert costa of the national review. and strategist roger stone. so johnathon, it's not the convention, right? it's not the 47% for gaffer of or the /* /- or the lousy management it is mitt. explain what you mean by that. >> we get so caught up watching this campaigning day in and out and the latest economic indicators. it is important to step back and put our shoes in the average swing voter isn't paying that close attention. consider what they see. if you look at romney in terms of his resume
missing opinions. he talks about america and another four years with obama. we look at how it is run the 2012 campaign how it is conducting foreign policy how it paralyzed economic growth and solutions being offered by the romney, ryan ticket and do they have the country's answers? because the donald has been less than silent on the abysmal obama record he like so many on the right have been subjected to ridicule by the president and his team out of chicago. >> can the president do more to show leadership on being transparent with regard to documents, records, his own background that's another underlying theme the campaigns are going at. >> are you talking about donald trump? >> i know he has been taking flack lately but no one is happier no one is prouder to put this birth certificate record to rest than the doll nald. >> looking to continue to bring up is college records. >> the donald trump question which i think he is the one who brings it up the most. >> last year at this time on this very weak end we finally delivered justice to one of the world's most notorious individuals.

in the four years that president obama has been president. they care, too. but we are supposed the believe from stephanie cutter and the campaign that forget the last four years, except when it comes to romney, remember when his taxes we don't know what he did in taxes. remember when 15 years ago he was at bain capital? >> andrea: greg, shouldn't men be upset? think about it. romney was hammered talk about the 47%. there is 49% of the country that is men. president obama isn't talking about them. >> greg: we are so marginalized. he never talks about my love life and how to subsidize my love life. that costs money, too. i have to go pay for that. that is not fair. that creates a lot of stress in my life. it causes me to drink. i often fall down. i'll hurt myself. i have goto go to the e.r. think about all the business of the e.r. because of sexual rejection. >> bob: you know something? nobody takes in account how much it costs, sexual stuff costs. but let me say this. if i were the romney campaign, this would worry me. you say how much trouble the country is in. the number of people think i

stock. she was one of the last three or four people obama was considering. there were things against her. she is not an exciting speaker. it was not a bill clinton's speech. very measured. levying off of the teleprompter. saw lead information off the cuff she is different. she is savaged with the press and i actually brought up clip of jonge to work -- jon stewart on "the daily show" lampooning the speech she gave in response to the president bush "state of the union." it was not well done. jon stewart had a great time. from the communication perspective she is not that inspirational. and that is a lot of what was written she will not bring a lot. she did not have foreign policy experience. she said that made the difference with joe biden was born policy and she agreed it was essential. but now she is a cabinet secretary and knows where that will take her? >> the third is senator made the castle on. >> and was four several reasons. the first woman elected to the senate in her own right. there was an article of the women in congress over his dead body. there are still quite a few but marg
that automatically? this time around it's more dangerous, isn't it? for president obama to blame a guy four years ago. >> yeah, because people are going to say, what did you do lately? you've had four years to fix the economy and look at the economic malaise we're still in. look at the jobs reports. last month, adding 96,000 jobs. not even enough to keep pace with population growth. chris: we put the first debate to the matthews meter. 12 of our regulars, including john, kelly and howard is mitt romney more likely to break through wednesday night on style points or on substantive arguments? nine say substance. three say style. you voted with the majority. howard, -- >> well, he's got to do it. again, deftly with humor. but he's got to brace the president. he's got to say, look, you're responsible. you're the economic commander in chief. there has not been nearly enough progress and not what you promised. here are five promises you made. you haven't met any of them. why do you deserve another four years, sir, if you haven't done that? that's the case he's got to make in the first debate. chris: well d

determine the outcome here. barack obama's victory here in north carolina four years ago was the first by a democrat since 1976. it was helped in large part by a huge turnout by african-americans, a whooping 72%, well above the national average. but his win here was his slimmest margin in the country. a mere 14,000 votes. it looks like he'll have to do as well or better among blacks and other voters in this deeply divided state. the task is made harder by the hit north carolina took in the recession. unemployment was 9.7%, fifth highest in the country. the rate for african-americans is nearly double. and the state has seen enormous change. demographically with the reverse migration of blacks returning and an influx of hispanics and other new residents. and economically. u.n.c. professor and long time political reporter says north carolina is moving in two directions at once >> the up escalator in this state is the economic diversification into higher-wage, higher-skill, research and development, biotechnology. the down escalator is the collapse of the traditional industries of textiles
really want him to count obama over this attack in libya, in benghazi, four americans, including the ambassador, died. his chief advisor is say it is still all about the economy. they are concerned, but not that concerned, as opposed to jobs or something like that. every day he is talking about foreign affairs is a day they are not talking about the economy. there is a real divide about what romney should do. >> we should point out the economy will be the topic at this debate, at least it will be domestic policy, for the most part. do we expect -- to mention romney might come out with more specifics. he spent four minutes on his specific plans for the economy during his speech. what do we expect this time around? >> we expect him to lay out more detail in this format, although whether it allows itself to an in-depth policy discussion is another matter. he is under a lot of pressure, especially under -- from conservative pundits, to put more meat on the bone and say what he would do differently on issues ranging from the economy to foreign affairs to everything else did you presid

used to be a sure thing. that changed four years ago with president obama the first hopeful to win that state in 40 years from the democrats. the latest polls give the president a slight edge. the real clear politics average has him leading governor romney by 4.5 points. most rates show the race in the margin of error. john roberts is live in springfield, virginia. john, governor romney today focused on the military and veterans in that area. >>reporter: he is working hard to put this back into the red column, talking to a group at the men legion post today. he told them about the potential effect of defense cuts in the looming sequestration saying it could result in the loss of 136,000 jobs here in virginia but it would profoundly affect military readiness and america's security. >> troubled and dangerous world we live in. the idea of cutting our military commit my by a trillion is unthinkable. and devastating. when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >>reporter: mitt romney said he does not know how president ob

shows how important virginia is. remember, president obama, then senator obama four years ago, he became the first democrat to win virginia in a presidential election since 1964. and alina, one part of mitt romney's strategy of winning the white house is taking back some of those states that traditionally voted republican like virginia, north carolina, and indiana. all states that the president won four years ago. >> and also ohio as we were talking about earlier, another important battleground. no republican has ever won the white house without winning ohio. >> reporter: exactly. >> also want to talk a little bit about something that romney likes to talk a lot about on the trail, which is his experience in business and how he's best to lead the economy back into recovery. but what's interesting is that he's actually losing his edge in at least three swing states on the economy, right? break down those numbers for us. >> reporter: this is fascinating. because what is the story behind those top-line polls? what's the numbers behind the numbers? a lot of it is the economy. a lot of polls n
on fire. the "washington post" gave it four pinocchios and quote, a mitt romney tv ad claims the obama administration has adopted a plan to gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements. the plan does neither of those things. back to the claim governor romney made about correcting ads or statements if there's anything factually wrong or amiss as he said, jim acosta called and e-mailed the romney campaign to ask if they could give any examples of that happening. so far he's gotten no response. he joins me now. so does lori robinson. jim, you pressed governor romney on that welfare ad which independent fact checkers have said was false. he didn't back down. not only did he not back down, he seemed to double down on it. >> that's right. he did not back away from that statement at all and as a matter ofstt, he talks about it at his campaign rallies, hetas aut in that's why we asked him about it, because it struck us on the campaign plane the other day when he first made this charge that the president has been trying to quote, fool people with the president's speeches and with the presid
obama leading in four crucial swing states. now, the new polling was done after the release of mitt romney's secretly recorded remarks to a group of wealthy donors back in may. romney told them as you know that 47% of americans are dependent on government, see themselves as victims and will vote for president obama no matter what. he said it wasn't his job to worry about them. he says he didn't say it very elegantly but as you saw at the top, mr. romney doubled down today with cnn's jim acosta on that now debunked ad claiming that president obama is taking the work requirement out of welfare. in addition, as we said, there's new polling out tonight with a special focus on the economy. i talked about it earlier with chief national correspondent john king and chief political analyst gloria borger. so john, new polling out today from the "washington post" focuses on two of the most critical states in the election cycle, obviously ohio and florida. what do they show? >> they show bad news for governor romney heading into the big week of the first debate. ohio without a doubt a must-win
obama's next four years would be different than the first term. >> what is different between a second term obama than a first term. >> you are right. we have come a long way since we were losing jobs in 2008. we are net positive in terms of jobs created. but the hole was huge and we had to not only fill that hole but create an economy in which the middle class had a chance. we won't get there by going back to the same policies we had before. >> how are we going to get there? >> by responsibly dealing with these deficits and leaving money to invest. education, research and development. >> those aren't specific proposals. i'm asking -- >> 100,000 new math and science teachers. we need that. >> that's a goal, right? >> educating training 2 million new workers in our community colleges in conjunction with business to fill jobs that are open right now. boosting american manufacturing by ending the tax break that sends jobs overseas and giving tax incentives to companies that start manufacturing businesses here. these are specific tangible proposals and i believe they will pass because i be
at that point. four years coming in off what obama inherited is a different situation. >> you know, one thing i would say is that the presidential level and at the gubernatorial level and the senatorial level, people are paying a lot more attention. there's a lot more money involved, seeing the ads, following the debates. when you get further -- at that level i would say the campaigns do matter. romney coming out and making his comments about the 47%, that had an impact. >> huge. >> it had a huge impact. i would say the obama campaign has been very skilled in the way that they framed romney early and also in framing this election in general as not just about the economy, but about the future of the middle class. i would argue as you get further down the ballot, campaigns matter less and less. you are more subject to the national wins because voters just aren't paying as much attention. >> and the amount of -- >> to the campaign you're running. >> the amount of money can sway the race more easily? >> that's exactly right. and as an example i would -- in 2010, republican wave across the country.

real trouble so i'm afraid i have to go negative. (laughter) almighty father, almost four years ago president obama promised hope and change, but a lord and creator of the universe was this the change you wanted. the democrats left you off their convention platform and they want to force your servants to provide birth control to ther who of babylon. (laughter) obama punishes the job creators. just imagine how he'll treat the job creators. it's time to send obama a message-- maybe a river of blood or locusts, or losing ohio. (laughter) because barack obama isn't just wrong for the nation, he's wrong for creation. so, god, remember. on november 6-- a day which you are already in and will always be in for a time of eternity-- vote mitt romney. but bring photo i.d. because they're really cracking down. i'm stephen colbert and i pray this message. we'll be right back.

cannot afford four more years of barack obama. we're not going to have four more years of barack obama. his plan and his approach says fundamentally that government knows better than you how to live your life, how to pick winners and losers, how to choose companies that can be successful and products that have a future, the government, that a group of bureaucrats of real smart people, working hard, they're good people who work in washington, but he has this view that somehow they know better than free people. so he's going to put them in the most important -- or one of the most important relationships that you have, that's the relationship between you and your doctor. he's going to put government between there if he has his way. he wants a government that is more and more expensive and intrusive. do you know how much money he spent in one year, putting money into companies that he thought had a bright future, green companies. he spent $90 billion, $90 billion. and sent it into companies that in many cases that were owned by campaign contributors of his. >> you hear the boos in the crow
why the next four years under president obama would be disasterrous. shouldn't focus on the last four years. focus on next four years and what four more years of obama policy would look like and lay out romney alternative. and i think he needs to go right at obama. my main advice would be ignore the moderator. sort of like juan does with you. when one argues with me and ignores all your questions around all that. he has to take do not get -- do not answer jim lehrer. go after president obama and speak to him in the second person and say you have failed unfortunately and here is what we can do differently and make it a sharp contrast. >> chris: interestingly enough, liz, when i talked to congressman ryan about the fact that romney needs a clear victory because of the state of the polls he pushed back against that. does he need a clear victory? >> he does. i think there is universal consensus that he has to do something to shake up the trajectory of the race and a safe performance probably isn't going to be enough at this point. having said that i think it might not be that hard for rom
and that means offering his own way ahead and, really explaining why the next four years under president obama will be disastrous, shouldn't focus on the last four years, focus on the next four years and clear choice, and really lay out what four more years of obama policies, in terms of debt and, no economic growth and in terms of a failed foreign policy, would look like, and lay out the romney alternative, and, i think he needs to go right at obama. my advice, ignore jim lehr, and, like i do with juan williams... ignore the question and, do not answer jim lehr, speak to obama in the second person, you have failed and here's what we can do differently, to make it a sharp contrast. >> chris: interestingly enough, liz, when i talked to congressman ryan, about the fact that romney needs a clear victory, because of the state of the polls, he pushed back, very much against that. does he need a clear victory? >> yes. he does, i mean, i think there is universal consensus he has to shake up the trajectory of his race and a safe performance will not probably be enough at this point. having said that,
that happened four years ago. joe biden and barack obama have been talking about this for four years, and quite frankly the last four years on the campaign trail, we've been digging out from all these bad decisions. and look, they're relevant today, because what mitt romney wants to do is take all those bad decisions, huge tax cuts for the wealthy instead of the middle class, letting wall street write its own rules, he wants to go back to all of that. because for some reason, he remembers those as good economic times. but the middle class doesn't remember those as good economic times. we have dug out, we've added jobs in the past 30 minutes for the private sector. and that's what's important and that's what this choice will be about. >> but i assume you agree, if you had your way, a do-over, he could have phrased it a little bit better than he did. i understand what you're saying and i certainly appreciate what he probably wanted to say, but the way it came out was not necessarily politically smart. >> well, look, wolf, i think the debate tomorrow is going to be the choice that joe biden exactl

at "real clear politics" average and that gives you a better sense which has obama up about four. even if you take claims at face value, jon, if he is up by eight or 11 points in any of these polls, even if you were to take out the possibility of oversampling, which i don't think is happening and i could explain that later, necessarily, the, he is still up by so much even if they were oversampling he is still ahead. he is still ahead by four or five points. it will not benefit the republicans to pretend this is just all the pollsters helping obama. jon: well, judy, the one of the points republicans like to make that there was a 7 percentage point advantage among democratic voters who turned out in 2008. so if the pollsters use that model, if they weight all of their polls by democrats plus seven, those were the numbers, four years ago, they're saying it is not accurate because you're not going to get the same kind of democratic enthusiasm and democratic turnout in 2012 that you had in 2008 when barack obama was a new, unknown and very exciting contender. >> well that is the key questio
